Oh Wow: The 2017 European Yo-Yo Champion's Winning Routine

March 16, 2017


Note: Just watch the video, no screepcap is going to do justice to whatever the hell I just watched.

This is a very impressive video of Evan Nagao's yo-yo routine that just won the 2017 European Yo-Yo Championship in Bratislava, Slovakia. It kind of blew my mind. It also doesn't hurt that he performed to Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Free Bird'. Because if I'm a judge at a yo-yo competition and somebody performs to 'Free Bird', I'm automatically handing them first place and I don't care if all they do is walk the dog and fail to get the yo-yo to return. Evan is better than that though, he does things with a yo-yo that I never thought were possible. Now I'm not saying he's a wizard, but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to find out he resides in a cave atop an enchanted mountain. "So you're saying he's a sorcerer." There's no question.

Keep going for the video with tons of ooh-ing and aah-ing from the audience, who clearly know their yo-yo tricks.

Thanks to rory, who can't even imagine how insane the hotel parties after a yo-yo competition must be.
